    Luck and positive thoughts only bring you so far.
    There's a difference between someone who thinks positively and applies it in a practical way, and someone who thinks it will work "magically." There's nothing magic about it, which is the point of my post.

    It's the positive attitude that motivates the person to pursue things, or the negative attitude that causes them to self-negate.

    Lmao .. Of course i'm into positive affirmations/cosmic ordering/LOA

    I send out my positive (most of the time) vibes into the universe and wait. I have a post it note at the side of my bed so i read it every morning and by my front door.

    I have a feng shui frog angled towards my front door. I have 3 three legged frogs in my living room. I have a walnut with a canadian coin in it along with green candle wax to aid money. I have 3 feng shui coins in my purse. i am surrounded by crystals to align my chakra's.

    I could go on but i may sound crazy.

    And i'm doing OK financially. Lol. Ultimately like brings like.

    I think it works in the sense that the more time you spend thinking about positive things the more open your mind is to perceiving positive things. Optimists for example are more likely to spot a coin on a pavement than pessimists because they're open to the possibility.

    There are near infinite "positive" things that happen every day, the same for "negative" things, we can't possible perceive or give significance to all of them so our mind filters it out. This kind of thinking is skewing the filter towards perceiving positive things.
